10 Pretty, Textured, & Free Sock Patterns

I’m daydreaming about when I’ll be done with my afghan for my friend’s wedding and can knit whatever I want again.  Here’s a medley of delightful and charming sock patterns that I’ve been looking at to tide myself over until then:

Stepaside

Drachenschwingen

Hermione’s Everyday Socks

Paraphernalia

Gladys

Rye

Simple Skyp Socks

Broken Seed Stitch Socks

Leyburn Socks

Owlie Socks

I need to knit more socks.

Have you guys checked out Botanical Knits 2 by Alana Dakos yet?  It’s full of so many pretty patterns!  Pictured above:

Verdure fingerless mitts

Twigs and Willows mitts

Sunlit Autumn sweater

Ivy Trellis hat

Flourish sweater

Forest Foliage wrap

Sprig Sweater

Ferns hat

Hanging Leaves wrap

Aren’t they all lovely?  There are a few more (equally beautiful) patterns in the collection as well.

I have not yet, but I certainly plan to do so!

Another one of my embroideries, I think this is the last bird I did, it was a commission. It is hand embroidered in Natesh with a hand painted background and french knots for the branches. I have done branches on the sewing machine, but my machine was being temperamental and I didn’t want to risk spoiling the bird as I had to add the branch after the bird was finished!

Working on a new scarf pattern. The idea came from a baby blanket pattern that I designed a few years ago. I love the cable traveling down one side. #knitting #scarfpattern #spinningsheep #nofilter #handmade

Tour de Fleece 2014, day 15

After hours and hours of spinning the single, it was finally time to ply the burnt orange tonal. While the skein is soaking, here some unwashed pics. ;-)

115 grams resulted in 372 meters of chain plied yarn. I cant wait to check out the washed skein.
